Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

A Faith Prayer

In James 5:15 it talks about an effectual and fervent prayer. What exactly is an effectual, fervent prayer? One translation calls it a prayer offered in faith. Call it a "faith prayer". In other words, when we talk to God about something going on in our life we ought to believe that it will change. Of course it must be in line with His Word. But we must believe that what we are asking will actually happen. Belief is the path to the manifestation.
I think too often we negate the very words we pray with our own words of doubt and unbelief. Every word spoken in doubt needs a word of faith to cancel it out. What could happen in your life today if you had an attitude adjustment and began to actually believe that God could come through like YOU need Him to for you? Would you act differently? I would hope you would begin talking as if the answer were already being dispatched in your direction because it is!
An effectual(constructive, worthwhile) and fervent(intense,passionate) prayer will do a whole lot of good. Isn't it time you saw prayer making a difference?
